A covert meeting was called after claims made by former intelligence officer David Grusch, who said the US government recovered evidence of aliens from a craft that crashed on Earth
Politicians have been summoned to a top-level classified briefing next week at which they could be told if mankind has evidence of aliens.
Members of the House Oversight Committee of the US Congress will hear confidential details on “unidentified anomalous phenomena”, also known as UFOs.
The covert meeting was called after former intelligence officer David Grusch, publicly claimed the US Government had secretly recovered biological evidence of at least 10 aliens from craft that crashed on Earth.
The US Air Force veteran, a former member of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and National Reconnaissance Office, said his government had reverse-engineered – or rebuilt – downed spacecraft in a bid to steal a march in the global arms race.
He alleged officials had “killed people” who tried to expose the secret. Tomorrow’s (Tuesday, January 4) briefing will be conducted by the Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, Thomas A Monheim.
Officials have already been sworn to secrecy about what will be discussed.
It comes after renowned spoon bender Uri Geller claimed an “alien mothership is lurking in the solar system and could be watching us”.
Geller, who himself claimed the CIA once showed him evidence of aliens, took to Twitter/X and was seemingly stunned by a photograph of a UFO. But further research into the image revealed it was not the alien encounter he had believed it to be.
Writing on the social media platform, Geller sent out two photos sent to him by an Israeli Lieutenant Colonel of what was, at first, believed to be a floating ship in the skies of Israel.
One community note later and Geller is looking a bit red faced after heralding the visit of aliens, when actually he was looking at an edited street lamp.
He wrote: “This photograph was taken by an Israeli Lieutenant Colonel who is a close friend, he was driving today by a sensitive installation in Southern Israel when he photographed this strange looking object simply hanging in the sky then he says it simply shot away!
“Alien mothership lurking in our solar system could be watching us with tiny probes, Pentagon official suggests!” Geller later suggested the incident could be an observation of a “time warp”.
